About

From its humble beginning as a result of cottage prayer meetings in 1879, Friendship Baptist Church has existed to serve God and share the life-changing news of His love. Whether thru standard ministries, mission and community outreach, small group studies, or fellowship events, we welcome the opportunity to reach out to our neighbors for Christ….wherever they might be. 

An affiliate of the Southern Baptist Convention, Friendship Baptist Church is located on a multi-acre campus in the beautiful rolling hills of southwestern Lee County, Virginia. Our congregation is made up of individuals and families of all ages and career paths. God has blessed us with a group of folks possessing a wide variety of gifts and talents. Thru the leadership of the Holy Spirit, this rich diversity makes us better servants together, for Him. 

The family of Friendship shares many of the same characteristics of any other family. We feel each other’s concerns, cry together when times seem rough, lift each other up in prayer, rejoice with one another in God’s blessings, and laugh every chance we get! Isn’t that what family is all about? God loves us so much and we want to show His love to those who need it most. 

Perhaps you’re a new Christian looking for a place to put down roots and grow. Maybe you’re a seasoned believer in search of encouragement as you continue on in the journey. You might just be looking for real truth and God’s purpose for your life. Whatever your need or level of spiritual experience, one thing is sure: you’ll find God at Friendship!
